Review: Releasing music from the likes of Sinden, AC Slater, Jack Beats and Herve over the years, the Night Bass label out of the UK have worked with a who's-who of club music specialists. Both Blossom and Shdws have delivered on their own individual releases for Night Bass in the past with the label choosing a three-track collaborative split release as their return. Shdws' solo effort sees darker tones of 80s synthwave and vocals meet with warbling metallic bass lines, tech house drums and skipping rhythms. Teamed up with Blossom, the pair trip through a circus of synths, trippy vocals and out of shape rave to straight up dub and two step. Mind Games gonna make you trip.
Review: Phoenix-based DJ Blossom has been performing at the Night Bass Arizona shows for years, so A.C. Slater & Co. are beyond excited to introduce her first release on the Los Angeles-based label. The EP blasts off with the title track, featuring high energy vocals from TT The Artist. "DYTAM" keeps the vibe rolling along with a darker U.K. funky/bassline vibe, then leading into "Anime" 'a fidgety bass banger' with a grimy low end and featuring guest bars by Outlaw.
Review: The Night Bass rampage continues to rage as they bring in Bijou for this exciting four track selection, packing a serious punch. The title track 'Super Phat' is a heavyweight collaboration with Ushi Qute, working her impactful vocals into a high pressure build up, landing on a synth driven madness of a breakdown. To follow we have the super punchy drum work of 'Do Not Disturb' alongside the distorted devisings of 'Expert'. The EP is rounded off with some major flare as the shuffling synths and hard hitting drum designs of 'Better Than That' run riot.
Review: The Night Bass train continues to roll out furiously as they employ the services of five brand new faces across their brand new compilation 'Night Bass Freshmen'. Being one of the most popular bass labels in the UK, the standard is set very high and everyone steps up to the mark, kicking off with Blossom's vibrant 4x4 belter 'Go'. We then move into Nukid's highly experimental electro balad in 'Front2Back' before landing on the techy bass rolls of 'The Burbs' from Jordan Burns. Next up, Kendoll with his slightly acidic stomper in 'Stop Calling Me' before we round of the EP with some minimalist UK Bass from the rapidly rising duo of Nubass & Deppz.
So Cool (Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble remix) - (3:27) 52 BPM
Review: Immaculate street soul that more than lives up to its name, "So Cool" swoons and cruises on a loose wavey synth groove laced with lazy horns and a stumbling set of kicks. An authentic 80s boogie homage with warm echoes of Amp Fiddler-style sincerity, it's got summer stamped all over it. Liquid Beat affiliate Buscrates flips in a warm-as-toast version that has boogie stamped all over it. Balmy class.
